Western Digital Begins to Sample QLC BiCS4: 1.33 Tbit 96-Layer 3D NAND
Western Digital has started sampling its 96-layer 3D NAND chips featuring QLC architecture that stores four bits per cell. The chip happens to be the world’s highest-capacity 3D NAND device. The company expects to commence volume shipments of this memory chip already this calendar year.
Western Digital’s 96-layer BICS4 3D QLC NAND chip can store up to 1.33 Tb of raw data, or around 166 GB. The IC will be initially used for consumer products Western Digital sells under the SanDisk brand, so think of memory cards (e.g., high-capacity SD and microSD products), USB drives, and some other devices. The manufacturer expects its 3D QLD NAND memory to be used in a variety of applications, including retail, mobile, embedded, client, and enterpr...The ASRock Z370 Taichi Motherboard Review: Competitive at $220, Aggressive at $190

Not defined by a naming convention, the Taichi sets out to be a well-rounded board with a lot of features at its price point including three M.2 slots, eight SATA ports, SLI/Crossfire support, as well as dual NICs and Wi-Fi capabilities.Corning Unveils Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ for Wearables
Corning has introduced its new Gorilla Glass DX and DX+ protective glass substrates designed specifically for wearables and featuring not only scratch resistance and durability, but also antireflective and contrast-improving properties.
Corning’s Gorilla Glass DX and Gorilla Glass DX+ are evolution of the company’s Gorilla Glass SR+ protective composites for wearables and other devices featuring small screens. In a bid to better address applications like smartwatches, the new substrates feature an antireflective property that is said to be 75% better than that of ‘standard glass’ as well as a special structure that improves contrast ratio of a display by 50% at the same brightness level vs. standard glass. Both features are important ...Corning Announces Gorilla Glass 6 for Smartphones, Doubles Durability
Corning this week introduced its next-generation Gorilla Glass 6 cover glass for smartphones that promises to double durability when compared to its predecessor. The manufacturer says that the first devices that will use the protective glass will hit the market already in the coming months.
According to Corning, its Gorilla Glass 6 is an entirely new material “chemically strengthened to higher levels of compression” and designed to sustain multiple drops throughout a lifetime of a device. The substrate is designed for phones that use glass for more than 85% of their enclosure surface, so the Gorilla Glass 6 is claimed to be a better fit for handsets with displays featuring an 18:9 or 19:9 display aspect ratio than the company’s previo...HP Unveils Z2 Mini G4 SFF Workstations: Up to Six-Core Xeons, Pro GPUs
HP this week upgraded its miniature Z2 Mini workstation with the latest Intel’s Core and Xeon E processors with up to six cores as well as professional-grade graphics cards from AMD or NVIDIA. The HP Z2 Mini G4 machines sustained a very compact form-factor of the previous-gen Z2 Mini systems, but significantly improved performance over the models launched more than 1.5 years ago.
The fourth-generation HP Z2 Mini workstations come in a black chassis made of a metal alloy and featuring a some plastic parts. The box measures 216×216×58 mm (8.5×8.5×2.28 inches), which is larger than consumer-grade Intel’s NUCs (and their derivatives from other brands), but is smaller than typical gaming systems with discrete GPUs. Miniature size is of co...Intel Teases Upcoming QLC SSD For Datacenters
Intel has started production of their first datacenter PCIe SSD using QLC 3D NAND flash memory, which stores four bits per memory cell. This isn't a full product announcement and we don't even have a proper name for the new SSD, just a mention that it is part of a new D5 product family for datacenters—which may signal a reorganization of Intel's naming scheme for SSDs. Intel will be sharing more information in a few weeks at Flash Memory Summit August 7-9, where Intel VP Rob Crooke is scheduled to give a keynote speech on August 8. Earlier this year, Intel confirmed that they would be producing QLC SSDs in the second half of 2018, and that they were putting up to 20TB in a 2.5" U.2 drive, but it is not yet clear whether that configuratio...Western Digital to Shut Down HDD Manufacturing Facility, Increase Production of SSDs
Western Digital this week announced plans to shut down its HDD assembly facility (near Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia) by the end of 2019, and then sell the property. The factory has been used for several decades, but Western Digital says that the total available market for client hard drives has been shrinking in the recent years and will continue to do so in the coming years, which is why it does not need the extra manufacturing capacities that it will not be able to use.
Western Digital is a vertically integrated maker of hard drives. The company produces all the components of HDDs in-house, everything from media substrates to platters and from head substrates to HGAs (head gimbal assembly) and HSAs (head stack assembly). Obviously, it per...Xilinx Acquires DeepPhi Tech ML Startup
Xilinx this week announced that it had taken over DeepPhi Technology, a machine learning startup from China. Deep Phi has been using Xilinx FPGA for its ML projects since its inception in 2016 and is therefore seen as a good fit for Xilinx to expand further into machine learning.
DeepPhi’s key product is Xilinx FPGA-based Aristotle architecture that is used to compute convolutional neural networks (CNN). The product is now used for video and image recognition tasks on surveillance cameras and NVR/DVR solutions, but the architecture itself is flexible and scalable for everything from smartphones to servers. For example, right now DeepPhi’s NVR/DVR solution can analyze up to nine channels of 1080p videos in real time and can model for o...

How strong is Gorilla Glass 6? We sat down with Corning to talk about the future of phonesWhile phone companies are peacocking around with their beautiful new phone designs, Corning is sitting behind the curtain, designing the glass that keeps our phones alive. Corning recently unveiled its next-generation Gorilla Glass. It's promised to be stronger than ever and designed to balance the effects of drops from heights and numerous drops to address what we need most— phones that won't shatter when they slip out of our hands. I spoke with Scott Forester Division Vice President, Marketing and Innovation Products, Corning about Gorilla Glass 6 and the future of glass technology. Corning first looked at what Gorilla Glass 5 has accomplished and thought about the biggest issue with glass on phones. Though Gorilla Glass 5 out-perfo...TicWatch Pro vs Apple Watch: Features or polish, because I can't have bothThere are a lot of things here Apple should pay attention to. I've been an active Apple Watch user for 260 days. Not a lot compared to some of the Watch veterans here at iMore, but enough for me to know a fair bit about the strengths and weaknesses of the platform throughout my daily use. I'm largely a fan of the way Apple does things on the Watch, but like most smartwatch owners I find myself never truly happy with display performance in daylight or the battery after a day of constant use. Neither are easy problems to solve, and the watches offering solutions to date have compromised in other areas which make them downright unpleasant to wear in my opinion. The folks at Mobvoi got my attention recently with its TicWatch Pro, a watch...How to block phone and FaceTime calls on iPhone or iPadStop annoying video callers dead in their tracks by blocking them in FaceTime.

FCC now accepting your petitions on whether T-Mobile - Sprint merger should go through
The T-Mobile and Sprint merger has been rumored on and and off for a while until recently when it was officially confirmed. However, the FCC has to perform a 180-day review of the merger before it can decide whether the $26 billion merger will take place or not. Now through August 27, you can submit petitions or comments on why you think the T-Mobile - Sprint poses a concern or benefit.

'Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse' unveils three more Spider-People, including Spider-Ham
Spider-Man: Into the Spider-Verse is not done adding Spider-People.
At Comic-Con's Hall H Friday, Sony unveiled dazzling new footage that included our first glimpses at three new Spider-Folks: Spider-Man Noir, voiced by Nicolas Cage; Peni Parker, voiced by Kimiko Glenn; and, last but not least, Spider-Ham, voiced by John Mulaney.
SEE ALSO: What exactly is the Spider-Verse?
In the footage, which was screened exclusively for Comic-Con, Miles Morales (Shameik Moore), Peter Parker (Jake Johnson), and Gwen Stacy (Hailee Steinfeld) arrive at a mysterious building, where a smiling woman hands them "Hello my name is" stickers.

It looks like Facebook is indeed building an internet satellite.
The social network is working on a new satellite project that will provide broadband internet connections to "unserved and underserved areas," according to FCC documents uncovered by Wired.

The documents, produced by a Freedom of Information Act request, detail several email exchanges between FCC officials and Facebook representatives from 2016 and 2018. In the 2018 messages, Facebook reps refer to a "small satellite experimental application for the Athena satellite." Read more...More about Tech, Facebook, Tech, and Social Media CompaniesM. Night Shyamalan drops extremely creepy 'Glass' trailer at Comic-Con
M. Night Shyamalan's latest brings together the stories of two of his movies —2000’s Unbreakable and 2016’s Split.

Following the events of Split, Glass picks up in a mental hospital with a woman (Sarah Paulson) treating Elijah Price (Samuel L. Jackson), David Dunn (Bruce Willis) and The Horde (McAvoy). Given the title and his eponymous character, it's safe to infer that Jackson will play a bigger role in this as his alias Mr. Glass. Anya Taylor-Joy will reprise her role as Casey Cooke, who was abducted in Split. Spencer Treat Clark and Charlayne Woodard also star.

WhatsApp is taking its most dramatic step yet to cut down on fake news.
The app is testing a new feature that places limits on how many times a single message can be forwarded, WhatsApp announced Thursday. The update comes as Facebook scrambles to fight the messaging app's fake news epidemic, which has lead to a number of violent incidents in India.

With the change, WhatsApp will restrict the number of times you can forward a single message. In India, the limit will be five chats; it will be 20 in other countries. The app will also remove the "quick forward" shortcut that appears alongside media messages.

Stop me if you've heard this one before: Facebook allows a third-party analytics company access to user data, conducts poor oversight of said company, and then is caught flat-footed when asked about the situation by a journalist.
Yeah, it's happened again. And no, you're not crazy for getting that Cambridge Analytica déjà vu. Facebook was forced to suspend Boston-based Crimson Hexagon today after the Wall Street Journal reported on the company's contracts with a Kremlin-tied Russian nonprofit and the U.S. government.

Whether you're a wide-eyed freshman or an experienced senior, moving into a residence hall is stressful. No matter how many times our parents reminded us to pack more than one towel, we still always managed to forget.
Since no one wants to admit to mom or dad that they were right all along (because you're an adult and you can do adult things by yourself!), these are the essentials you'll need to reassure them that you'll be just fine on your own.
